Ascorbic acid is a naturally occurring organic compound with antioxidant properties. It is a white solid, but impure samples can appear yellowish. It dissolves well in water to give mildly acidic solutions. Ascorbic acid is one form of vitamin C.
It's a mild reducing agent and can be used as a green way to produce metal nanoparticles, where the electropotential is above + 0,08V, like copper, silver, gold, platinum,molybdenum.
Capping these nanoparticles in PVP can be used to make water based conductive inks. Ask us for formulations.
It can also be used to synthesize reduced organic compounds like hydroquinone from p-Benzoquinone.
Ascorbic acid can be used in many electrochemical applications. As reported above, it can be used for make Hydroquinone and use it as anode organic or hybrid batteries (6225009) or use it alone in the same battery.
The hydroquinone can be recharged even directly with a photocatalyst.
It could be used as a "fuel" in organic/air fuell cell, and it can be recharged outside the cell, so the battery become like an "engine", even with a photocatalyst without electric energy consumption.
